1:55-2:40pm – Session 4 Gun Violence Restraining Order (“GVRO”)
In the wake of the 2014 mass shooting in Isla Vista near UC Santa Barbara, the Legislature passed a law that created the Gun Violence Restraining Order (“GVRO”). This is a powerful tool that allows law enforcement to seek a restraining order from a judge that would prevent individuals believed to be dangerous from having firearms for up to a year. But even though this tool has been available since 2016, very few law enforcement agencies take advantage of it and many law enforcement agencies and public entities are unaware of it.

3:50pm-4:35pm – Session 6: What Active Shooter Lectures Always Forget!
Despite improved integration of first responders to active shooter incidents, recent events have demonstrated that there is no current ability to provide care to large numbers of victims within a “hot zone”. Recently, several agencies have made recommendations to include bystander involvement into the planning framework for man-made disasters, including the DHS “Stop the Bleed” campaign. While this is a positive step towards acknowledging the civilian resource, it is a limited solution to a multi-faceted problem. We propose a system incorporating the STB approach into a more complete solution.
